Somewht squashy, I do not know if it is because of the sort of hop the use. I like the aorma and colour but not the taste.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cask conditioned at The Wig & Pen, Sheffield. Gold amber with no head. The quality in this pub beggars belief, I had a poor day in Sheffield for quality, but this is the pits. Winey, tainted, yeasty and I’m sure its not the beer. Terrible.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (Morley Hayes Golf Club) 2006-7. Robust, no-nonsense bitter. Sharp hop, dry bitters; for ages this was the only Peak beer you could get as they concentrated on getting one beer to be spot on. And indeed it is. To have it on cask at my 19th hole makes it even better.
